Wing Ding Constructions at ArtWalk
Wing Ding Constructions is Frank Saggus: a crafty fellow who
travels the globe searching for unusual and unique elements to build into each of his birdhouses so
no two are exactly alike.
Described by Saggus as “olde worlde craftsmanship,” the birdhouses are not only easy on the eyes, but are fully functional. “And they’re easy on the planet,” Saggus said, “made mostly from recycled materials. How’s that for warm and fuzzy? No endangered species are harmed in the process of building these charming little homes.”
Saggus built his first house out of lumber from a hay barn he tore down at his grandfather’s house and junk out of his workshop. He exhausted that pile of lumber and gold mine of junk long ago. Now, he is always on the lookout for a house or barn being torn down or falling down where he can stop to pull off a few sticks of lumber, or buy the whole thing and take what he needs.
According to ArtWalk, “If you are a bird lover, or even just a fan of fine handcrafted goods, Frank Saggus is sure to have something that catches your eye. From the golfer to the cowboy, his birdhouses are wonderfully diverse in color, shape and size.”
ArtWalk has a huge selection in stock, but warns visitors that they’re likely to fly right out the door.
